Jumped into this brave new world (for me, anyway!) of The Mighty. Laid up with a neck flare so plenty of time to explore. Looking forward to seeing where it takes me. #NewToTheMightyApp #nervous #hopingforkindness
I’m new to this community, a few months ago I was diagnosed with Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome. If there’s anyone here that isn’t familiar with it it’s a rare condition in which the duodenum is compressed between the abdominal aorta and the superior mesenteric artery. I’ve had a failed NG and NJ tube placement ( the NJ took almost three hours and still wouldn’t go down) I’ve had two PICC lines, and I’m on my second round of TPN. There’s also a high possibility I have POTS. I guess I’m having trouble accepting all this. I feel so alone, no one really understands what this is all like. I hate going out in public and people staring at my PICC and giving me that pity smile. Any tips on this adjustment period? #POTS #ChronicIllness #NewToTheMightyApp #SuperiorMesentericArterySyndrome
Hey. So I’m not super new (been here two weeks) but I haven’t really introduced myself. I’m Jinx. I’m 18 and I live in the USA. I have a few mental disorders and illnesses and an autoimmune disease. I am 100% sure I suffer from PTSD from past physical and emotional abuse. I don’t like talking abut my feelings but I’m getting better at it. Nice to meet ya! #NewToTheMightyApp #Hello
Hello everyone! My name's Christina, and I have a colorful history/background. I discovered The Mighty by accident, honestly, but I'm really thankful I did. For two years now, I've been on a self-actualization journey after my identity was shattered. Being the product of parentification (a term I'm just recently learning about), I built who I was around those I cared for. So, when I met my boyfriend and moved out, my world changed- drastically.
I look forward to chatting with people who understand where I am coming from, and even those who can't or don't. Either way, I'm incredibly thankful for all of you. So, don't be shy and say hello! More importantly, appreciate the support you've created here, because it is significant.
Hi guys, I’m new here and I’m really looking to make some friends who understand my struggles...I feel so different and “crazy” most days...I’m confused and a little lost on this whole BPD thing. Some days I think I’ve accepted it, and other days I feel as if I’ll lose the people I love, when I master up the courage to tell them I have BPD.
Anxiety and depression are one thing, so widely accepted and understood, but BPD just isn’t. I’ve read so much about BPD online and listened about it through podcasts. Some of those leaving me feeling sad and like a monster, others giving me hope.
I would love for anyone who is reading to reach out, share experiences/thoughts or become my friend.
Hi, my names Bridget. I’m 17 years old, I love to read, and write. I love to be in the water and my cat Zander is my baby. I’m also one of the most loyal and honest people you will ever meet. But there’s more. I have an anxiety disorder called generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and depression. I’ve been struggling with both since I was about 8 years old. I started self harming when I turned 13 it escalated to cutting and burning and became so bad that I left public school to homeschool myself. I’ve been through years of therapy and night after night in my local hospital and even spending a week a children’s hospital in a big city. I’ve been through a lot. And to see me now so many think that I’m healed. They are wrong, I fight everyday. Sometimes I fight to work and get up in the morning but some days I fight for my life. I love The Mighty and seeing that I’m not alone. I love to write and it’s really calming for me. I also love the advice that I can get by just posting a question . Tonight it’s about 1:00 AM and I’m really struggling. I’ve been clean from self harm over a year now but on my hard days the temptations are almost as strong as day 1. I don’t do well with change and that basically describes this summer. Im trying to handle it the best I can but it’s going to be a tough summer. I’m just glad to know I’m not alone. #NewToTheMightyApp #Anxiety #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder #Depression #Addiction #Selfharm #Cutting #Recovery
I'm nervous to share my story, but I have read so many on here that gave me the courage to give it a try. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia around 3 years ago at 22 years old. I also have generalized anxiety, and P.C.O.S. I'm a medical professional. I am married to my wonderful husband who has supported me through everything. I hope that in joining this community I learn more about myself and my wellness, and to encourage and support others with similar conditions.
